Serene's life has inspired this shop

I've always been inspired by the nature around us here in Humboldt and have tried to express it from time to time through art, but when my little girl, Serene, came into my life, this shop came to be. I was working in a very busy and stressful retail store when I became pregnant with her, and I knew, going back wasn't going to be the right choice for us.
Now that Serene and I have lots of time together, we like to spend it enjoying the beauty around us by taking walks through the woods, along the beach, up rivers, or wherever else we find a beautiful place to explore.
When I sit down to paint, it is these sights that inspire me.
I use glass cabochons and paint the back with a tiny brush, toothpicks, or pins to produce tiny details with acrylic paint. The next step is to add colors with nail polishes, glitter, and acrylic paint. Most pieces have more than 15 layers of various paints to give depth and dimension, and to add protection from mounting adhesives. Finally, each piece is fitted with a setting, bail, or custom wire. Every piece is unique. No two are alike.
Custom orders are no extra charge. Personalization, or messages on the back are approximately $1 per letter. Price adjustments can easily be made for lettering. Simply message me what you would like. I usually respond within the day.

    Serene's roll is key to this shop since she is the reason for opening it. I've always enjoyed creating things, but she has been the facilitator in getting me back into art and putting this little shop up.

    This shop is a creative outlet for me. I love finding new ways to make something beautiful. Each item is something that I personally would wear and has meaning for me. My hope is that it will mean something for you too.
